So Beachy

Not only have I been preparing for vacation, but my poor blog has been on vacation, too!  I have a few projects that I completed prior to our family vacation and was too busy to post them.    I have been home for a couple of days and have been trying to get back in the groove. Sigh....
We went on a Caribbean cruise and had lots of fun.  By far, the time spent on the beach was awesome.  For us Arizonians, the beach is a real treat!  I miss the beach already...
Here is a beach ensemble I made my youngest DD, Sierra, who is SO fun to sew for.  I promised her a beach bag and this is what I came up with.

Pocket on the inside for all her little things!

I just LOVE, LOVE the fringed flip-flop appliqué, that I cannot recall where it is from.  I added a keychain to the beach bag for her never-ending collection of key chains!

What beach diva is without a matching cover-up?  This cover-up was RTW on super clearance from Target last summer.  $2.48 and voila-ribbon and appliqué flip-flops and it goes from vanilla to cookies-and-cream like!

Sierra just LOVED this set and strutted on the beach with it.  Reality is once on the sand, the beach bag fell from her hands and her cover-up came off her faster than a wardrobe malfunction!  ;)

Both fabrics are from Joann's.  It is home dec/outdoor fabric.  I used webbing for the handles and lime-green polka-dot ribbon for the pockets(yes those are pockets) and for the trim on the cover-up-also purchased from Joann's.
The flip-flop appliqué on the cover-up is from
As I am blogging to you and thinking of the beach, which was unbearably hot and humid, I am glad to be home in the desert of DRY HEAT.  Weather forecast for today-112!  Honestly, feels better than the 90 degrees on the beach.  Really....
It feels good to be home and being creative, once again!
